waltb87 wrote:so your saying a pitcher that pitched triple-a for three years has to be put on the 40 man roster or either he enters the rule 5 draft. And if he enters the rule 5 draft, he could be put on a team's 25 player major league roster, and if the team doesnt want him on the roster, then he is waived, and once he is waived he has to be offered back to the previous team. Am i right about this? But what if a minor league player plays for a team for three years, he has to enter the rule 5 draft or either be put on the 40 man roster, he cant play for the same team forever, am i correct about this 2? If he is picked in the rule 5 draft, does he have to be added to the MLB roster, or can he be optioned down to a lower level?
i appreciate all of the help so far, and im sorry for worrying ya so much about this, but ive been thinking about this for too long
